This book left me feeling sad but satisfied. It is about an extremely smart, eleven-year-old girl named Melody who is underestimated completely because she is in a wheelchair and cannot form words. It is written from her point of view and explains how she is so frustrated that people do not know just how smart she really is. At many parts in this book, something happens and she can’t do anything about it or say what she wants to, so all that comes out is a grunt or some non-intelligible noise. After reading this book, it will probably make you think twice when you see a person in a wheelchair or a person who is unable to talk. Instead of thinking, ‘Oh, I feel bad for that person’, or, ‘I’m glad I’m not that person’, you’ll remember Melody and how the real her was trapped inside her “fake-Melody” body. I strongly suggest this book for ages 9 and up.
